Printer Spooler dying when connecting to printers
We are having a very strange issue regarding printers:...
We currently use a WSF script to map printers to clients. The problem is that on some clients the print spooler service will crash out and stop - the event log just says that the Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly.
This issue appears to be random as it seems to affect some computers and not others and some users. Every user has a mandatory profile specified so I don't think it is a profile issue.
We have tried changing from a script method of mapping printers to using the Group Policy Preferences (Server 2008 R2) printer connections but this has not helped.
We use McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i for anti-virus - is there anyway that this could be affecting the mapping of the printers?
Thanks in advance!
